the united states is facing as the ukraine melts into this revolution crisis over the course of the last 48 hours. over the last 48 hours we have seen the public rhetoric from public officials from the president on down increase, very dramatic, brief statement by the president about 5:00 in the briefing room at the white house. the president of the united states does not go out on a friday afternoon at 5:00 on his way literally to a dnc national fund raiser and make this kind of statement unless the situation is dire, unless he has got to put down a marker but still it is unclear what tools are in the tool box for the united states at this point in order to coerce vladimir putin and russia to back off whatever they are up to in crimea at this point. >> nick, how important do you think is u.s. support to the people there in kiev? >> it's extremely important. because as mike says, it's not clear how many tools the u.s. has in its tool box. the ukrainian government has fewer tools in its tool box. we've had absolutely no action from the government, granted they are 40 years old so of course it

just learned that secretary of state john kerry spoke with ukraine's acting president, all this, the latest in a series of dramatic events that have been unfolding, we have our correspondents around the world following all of the developme developments. elise, what's the latest we're hearing on the secretary of state john kerry, what is he doing. >> reporter: meeting with his a advisors, speaking with his advisors, wolf, he's in boston right now but we're told that he participated in this white house meeting of principals, the president's top national security advisors via videoconference, he also reached out to the ukrainian interim president, basically to show u.s. support for ukraine not only with russian troops entering the area, but also with this political upheaval that's going on for several months, culminating in the ousting of president yatsenyuk, right now the u.s. has to show support, even as it answers russian military moves, it can also show it's pressure on russia by reporting -- ukraine is very fragile right now, it needs all this natural gas. by showing support f

federation, inside of ukraine. the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. >> that was president obama moments ago from the white house briefing room commenting on the escalating crisis in ukraine. earlier, unconfirmed reports of russian military intervention in the region sent the s&p lower. the whole episode underscoring just how sensitive the market is to this situation. the question now is, if the situation gets worse, what could that mean for stocks, could russia be the next black swan? we did see people during this session wanting to take risk off. in response to various reports that crossed the screen. >> risk off, other than u.s. equities. when you think about it, you talked about it just before, it was at five-year lows. it's a very cheap index, but it trades very poorly, there are risks that have been taken off there all along during this thing. and then bonds again. u.s. treasuries, the world forgot during the taper, there's one safe haven in assets and it's u.s. treasuries. they'v
the sovereign space of ukraine. we've heard defense secretary chuck hagel speaking for the united states in nato, saying this should be a time for caution and wise, diplomatic moves. but we have yet to hear, until now, from the president of the united states on this situation. president barack obama in the white house briefing room. >> over the last several days, the united states has been responding to events as they unfold in ukraine. throughout this crisis, we have been very clear about one fundamental principle, the ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to determine their own future. together with our european allies, we have urged an end to the violence and encouraged ukrainians to pursue a course in which they stabilize their country, forge a broadbased government, and move to elections this spring. i also spoke several days ago with president putin, and my administration has been in daily communication with russian officials. we've made clear that they can be part of an international communities effort to support the stability and success of a united ukraine going forward. which is not
, there is a vote now scheduled and ukraine, on march 30th, that they can establish a breakaway state. whether it will be recognized by the government in kiev is a different question. but the russians will be able to claim and crimeans will be able to claim look, there are such votes taking place in the west, there's a vote by scotland coming up to establish an independent state. so they can claim there's a lot of precedent. but i think the larger issue is this now. the president has two major i think objectives here. one is to ensure that international law and norms are respected and that is you don't invade the sovereignty of another country, which the russians are perilously close to doing. the other is his own reputation. there is a perception, fairly or not, that president putin has out-muscled him on more than one occasion, with regard to edward snowden, giving him asylum in effect, putting a thumb in the eye of the united states, and also then on syria, and the president does not want to look as if he's issued yet another red line, yet another warning, and then nothing happens. as one e

western and in particular american presence in ukraine and other states on their borders. they threw out people from nonprofits and nongovernmental organizations that were providing sort of social support and democratic training and leadership training because they believe that they were age ents of the american government. nothing could be further from the truth. but it tells you something about this being a real tense environment. you go to all your technical means of intelligence. satellite, electronics surveillance. you be sure that all the assets of the u.s. government and our allies around the world are being used to understand military what the order of battle is, exactly what assets they're moving closer and into the crimea. but spider marks is quite right. this is an invasion. it is what it is. and to sort of threaten that in june we won't show up to the g 8 isn't really -- tells you we don't have a lot of leverage over the russian. let's remember the president and the white house need vladimir putin and russia on iran and the negotiations, they need him on syria, they need him
.u. member states were somehow involved in making the crisis in ukraine worse, i should like to set out clearly my government's position. the united kingdom is deeply concerned by the escalation of tensions in the crimea peninsula and by the fact that the russian parliament has authorized russian military action on ukranian soil against the wishes of the ukranian government. this action is a grave threat to the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of ukraine. we condemn any act of aggression against ukraine. we have therefore sought an immediate and full explanation from the russian federation for the decision to authorize -- >> you've just been listening to an emergency session of the u.n. security council there discussing the situation in ukraine, really a riveting back and forth between the ukraine's representative, russia's representative and u.s. representative, ambassador is a man th samantha power. let me briefly summarize. samantha power, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. saying it is time for russian intervention in ukraine to end, and she argues that it is as dang
't think there's appetite in the united states, in red states or blue, to march u.s. troops into ukraine in order to fight a proxy war on russia's border. that being said, there certainly are tactics that we can take in concert with our european allies to economically isolate russia and make them pay a true kocost. frankly, from a military standpoint, i do think it's about time for some of our european friends to recognize that they might be next. this is now a pattern. if you upset russian integrity, if you cross vladimir putin, the next step may be invasion. that's happened now in georgia and in ukraine in a matter of about a decade. so, you know, whether it be the germans, who have always been sort of sitting back when it comes to issues of military intervention or others in the e.u., i'm not suggesting they marshall an army to march into crimea today but they have to be a little tougher on the russians as well. >> senator chris murphy of connecticut on the phone with us tonight. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> up next, remember the scramble to fix >> we have people wo

and instead keeps those forces in ukraine the united states may opt out at the next g-8 summit scheduled for early june in sochi. but the president's mentions in the briefing room were not enough for the very hawkish republican senator john mccain who suggested on cnn's "situation room" that he didn't go far enough and that putin doesn't respect obama. >> i really believe that when vladimir putin looks around the world, sees what happened in syria when the president -- when the red line turned pink and the president didn't act, our acquiescence to their occupation of georgia, the -- all of the actions that have to do and indicate a decline of the united states of america, i think he's emboldened and he's acting. >> now, other high profile republican lawmakers have stopped short of criticizing the president, but they've made clear they would like the united states to stand strong against russia, and in support of ukraine. christi and victor? >> all right, erin mcpike in washington for us. thank you, erin. >> all right, back here in the u.s., california is very much in need of rain. we've

this new quasi-state in crimea, claim its state then it may be harder for ukraine to become a member of nato. these may be strategic actions that putin is trying. >> i think what president putin -- president obama has done today was a very strong statement. an unscheduled press conference, that is quite unusual. chancellor angela merkel in germany has been very forceful as well, the ukrainian government should not do what the georgian government did in 2008, by responding with some force of its own. russia would like to have that so there wouldn't be black and white. right now it's black and white, it's russian aggression, even low level congregation aggressil aggression. >> accused putin of empire building, it's certainly getting ugly on the rhetoric side, it's a pleasure having you both on the show and look forward to having you back. >> thank you. >> turning from ukraine to brutal atrocities in the world's youngest country south sudan. what's going on there is horrific, in the town of malakol, in the oil rich north. find no words to describe the brutalities in malakol. war crimes

the united states do? >> not a lot they can do. if the ukraine goes back and tries to go back and request help from nato to help russia answer for what they're doing, again there's too much military force on the ground right now that's already been expended for him to back off. >> what does the ukrainian government do and what does kiev do? >> again if they decide to launch and meet this potential military force you could have a very bloody battle that takes mace in the southern part of the ukraine and again with 150,000 troops on that border very quickly deployed, while ukraine's military is very sharp very highly trained, it would be a very interesting battle so to speak. there's not enough numbers to match the russian forces. >> they are outmatched? >> they are outmatched, outnumbered outsupplied. better naval fleet that exists in the black sea easily reinforced. >> do you think this will happen quickly? >> if it does, it will happen quickly. will he back off in the next 48 hours? if he moves more troops in all we have to think is that he wants to keep that region. >> mike lyons thank

ukraine and georgia on a clear path to nato membership, the united states has essentially ignored what has happened in ukraine and now we're paying the price because our options are very limited. >> two things, i want you to tell me what has happened in the ukraine and maybe this is too simplistic but why not have ukraine split in two? >> i think there's a strategic interest for the united states but ask yourself this question, when was the last time the president either addressed publicly or considered privately what those interests are. >> the phone call that president obama had vladimir putin today. the g-8 and of course we know putin likes to put on a show. he had a show during the olympics and there in sochi and he loves to grandstand and he does care about how shis countr and power is seen. conversely, he has respect for power. so what is our play? >> we don't have a plan. you know, i personally never would have brought russia into the g-8. now all you have to do is get the europeans to agree to that. if you think they are exercised now, wait until the g-8 meeting in june and see how

threat, secretary of state john kerry warned russia any military in ukraine would be a quote, grave mistake. >> russia needs to be very careful in the judgments that it makes going forward here. we are not looking for confrontation. but we are making it clear that every country should respect the territorial integrity here. the sovereignty of ukraine. russia said that it would do that and we think it's important that russia keeps its word. >> kerry's counterpart in russia fired right back. he warned the west against forcing any decisions upon the interim ukrainian government. >> translator: it's dangerous and counterproductive to force upon ukraine a choice based on the principal you're either with us or against us. ukraine has to be a part of a global european family in the full meaning of the term. >> the crimea, the scene of fierce clashes today between pro and anti-russia protesters. the opposing groups were carrying russian and ukrainian flags. two people were killed in those demonstrations. and riots. more than 30 hospitalized. our first guest tonight says vladimir putin is cl

for ukraine and russia. no mention of the united states that is an important statement we have no skin in the game and i am sure vladimir putin was delighted to hear that. lou: does this look like a prearranged deal a packaged deal? >> i don't think it would've vances' this would happen i think putin was waiting for the olympics to finish now he has another success he will do this because there are no consequences who will respond? the only country willing to bail out is russia the only country that determines the energy surplus so i think russia does have a decision making power. georgia would have been easy. i think he waits to play for the whole game because by made the ukrainians will be bankrupt or will be broke can you imagine saying vote for me? i want to raise your taxes and force the anti-corruption austerity budget. the russians know they fall in their lap. >> the signals that are sent to russia russian defense ministers saying russia is now planning the permanent military presence outside russia's borders including vietnam, cuba, venezuela, ni caragua singapore and other cou
in a trilateral agreement with the united states, ukraine, russia and britain, all four countries in the memorandum basically confirmed their support for ukraine's independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity. as you said, there are russian forces in crimea, but you are now getting reports that additional forces are coming in from outside and they're now doing things that are not associated just with the russian pressa presence at their base, such as setting up roadblocks across the countryside. >> from the russian perspective, what are russia's realistic options here and what do you think they're most likely to do? >> i think this goes back to when viktor yanukovych fled the country, i think there's been a decision taken in moscow to look at ways to destabilize that government. they had various tools, one of which is try to introduce separatist tensions in crimea. they're playing i think a very dangerous game here. >> could we be looking at armed conflict between ukrainian forces and armed russian forces inside ukraine? >> so far ukraine has been extremely restrained. ther
at stake here for the united states? >> well, the importance of ukraine, its european engagement, i mean i think for the future-- i think we have to establish the premise that honest, functioning, competent democracies are good for world peace, are good for the people of those countries, first of all. and that, ukraine has not had that. and it's only hope for that evolving, painful though it will be in its birth is in my judgement, the united states and the eu working together, and being in for the long haul. >> but when it comes to russia, though, tensions keep rising. we're counting on the russians in some regard, if iran, in syria. >> yeah. >> i mean in a host of troubled parts of the world. >> yeah, if you wanted to view them, the bad things that could happen, mentioned earlier on the program, just the possibility of missed calculation. i never thought one was going to happen either. you could have miscalculations and really had something recently terrible if ukraine breaks up. so there's that. but as you say, he could say you mess with me in ukraine i will really mess with you and the
, is the united states obligated to get involved if russia moves against ukraine? >> well, i think we're certainly obligated from a kind of moral and political sense. it doesn't obligate us to do anything from a military standpoint. but i do think that russia is obviously violating that memorandum. that memorandum was concluded at a time when the ukrainians were giving up their nuclear weapons. they had been part of the soviet union. what the russians are doing right now is pretty much doing what they did in georgia, in south ossetia and whatever you have a russian population within what is now a neighboring state, what used to be a soviet union, the russians are making it pretty clear that they're prepared to support separatism. they had an approach to ukraine. clearly what they hoped in ukraine isn't going to place. now they're positioning themselves to take back crimea. the rest of the world ought to be clear that when you violate an agreement, there should be consequences. >> president obama yesterday warning russia not to essentially up the ante in ukraine. this is what president obama said i
on the ground. prompting this from president obama. >> the united states stands with ukraine, there'll be costs for military intervention in ukraine. >> supersaking to california, but with it a -- supersoaking to california, but wit i
